When it comes to glitz, glamour and sophistication, few places do it better than Singapore. One of the cleanest cities – and countries – in the world, it’s renowned for its manicured botanical gardens and pristine water front, complete with a dramatic nightly light show that illuminates the harbour and will never fail to take your breath away.
If you’re looking for luxury, you’ll have no trouble finding it here. Singapore is home to some of the very finest high-end hotels in the world, from the iconic Marina Bay Sands to the stunning Mandarin Oriental Singapore, both of which offer sweeping views over the city harbour. Better yet, they attract an affluent crowd of big spenders and high-rollers, with gambling having been legalised in 2005. So, it’s to be expected that some of the casinos here rake in the big bucks – and the huge jackpots are there for the taking.
If you’re planning a trip to this extravagant destination in the not too distant future, then look no further – because we’ve teamed up with the experts at SlotCash Casino to bring you the ultimate guide to Singapore’s most luxurious casino resorts – where the stakes are high and the adrenaline is second to none.
Marina Bay Sands
The spectacular Marina Bay Sands is undoubtedly Singapore’s most famous hotel. Its modern shape can be seen illuminated across the harbour from the city’s main boardwalk, with its unique twin tower design capped off with an enormous skybar sprawling all the way across both. Home to its iconic infinity pool, it’s little wonder this glamorous hotel attracts a wealthy crowd. And, set in a huge complex of designer shops, fine dining restaurants and bars, and on the edge of the famous Gardens by the Bay, there’s no better place to stay in Singapore.
The casino at Marina Bay Sands encompasses more than 15,000 square metres of gaming space spread over four levels. Home to over 1,500 slots, 600 table games and a vast selection of dining and entertainment venues, the piece-de-resistance is one of the world’s largest Swarovski chandeliers – a sign, if you needed it, that this is not somewhere that does things by halves.
Jake Smith at SlotCash Casino says: “The casino at the Marina Bay Sands is regarded by many as the finest casino in the world, and costing a huge $5.9 million to create, it’s also one of the most expensive. This place is one of the most extravagant complexes you will ever visit, and is a must for any casino-lover’s bucket list.”
Resorts World Sentosa
The sprawling Resorts World complex on Singapore’s Sentosa Island is perhaps one of the only other places that truly gives the latter a run for its money in the casino stakes. Buzzing with activity 24/7, it’s home to a plethora of glamorous hotels including the Amara Sanctuary, the Equarius and the Hard Rock.
Its on-site casino features expertly trained croupiers and hand-picked guest services ambassadors to ensure that customers want for nothing – and, with countless table games and slots available to play at any time that should take your fancy, this is one place you could never, ever get bored.
From baccarat to roulette, Resorts World Sentosa is unrivalled in its intimate knowledge of Asian gaming preferences, so if you take your nights at the casino seriously, then this is the place for you.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel
Offering luxurious accommodation just a 25-minute drive from Changi International Airport, the Fullerton Bay boasts a spectacular landscaped rooftop pool and bar. From its classy rosewood and chrome interiors to its luxurious spa, this place has got glamour down to a tee.
La Brasserie restaurant features both indoor and outdoor waterfront dining, with a selection of fine wines and mouth-watering cuisine on offer. Afterwards, head to the hotel’s glitzy casino to enjoy a night at the roulette table, where the impeccable service, world class cocktails and adrenaline-fuelled games will never, ever disappoint.
Aegean Paradise Cruise
For a unique experience at the casino that simply oozes glamour, look no further than the Aegean Paradise Cruise. Giving you the chance to take in the iconic Marina Bay light show from aboard a luxury liner, a full day and night of gambling fun is yours for the taking. And, with 40 live tables including poker and blackjack, plus hundreds of slot machines, it’ll take you that long to get through them all.
Pick up is from the Tana Merah Ferry Terminal, with a 45-minute journey to the Nongsapura Ferry Terminal, where you will board the Aegean Paradise cruise liner.
Whichever casino you choose during a visit to Singapore, one thing is certain – this island nation is home to some of the very best gaming spaces in the world. And, attracting a wealthy crowd that isn’t afraid to put its money where its mouth is, there are few places more thrilling to place your bets.
